  • Features

    • Primary drier
    • Improves through-drying
    • Develops full effect at high temperatures (> 150 °C)
    • Rapid surface drying
    • Acts as an adhesion promoter in anti-corrosion coatings

  • Applications

    • Coatings which dry by oxidation and are stoved at high temperatures, including:
      • Oil-based baking systems for cans
      • Dark-colored baking systems
    • Anti-corrosion coatings

  • Dosage

    In our experience, the percentage addition of iron, calculated on the metal content per binder (solid), is approx. 0.1 – 1.0 % Fe. The exact amount required depends on the binder used.

  • Storage

    Protect from the effects of weathering and store at temperatures below 50 °C. Once opened, containers should be resealed immediately after each removal of the product.

  • Safety
